Thu, 29 October 2:00pm

Imagine a world where kings prick their fingers as they sew, wolves wear heels, and princesses race to rescue sleeping princes…   Karrie and Jon haven’t rewritten fairy tales, or reimagined endings, or reinvented characters. What they have done is switch all the genders so children can imagine a universe where they are the heroes.  Enjoy the exciting world this swap creates and learn how to draw your own fairy tale character.

Make sure you have some pencils and crayons ready!  We’d love to see your pictures – please tweet @otsfestival
